More Trains

The day after Rylan's birthday we ventured out to the Diamond Valley Railway.  It is a park with lots of miniture trains that you can ride.  There is also a lot of parklands to explore, a kid's playground and heaps of BBQ areas. 

We packed a picnic and had a lovely few hours, exploring.  There were ponies there, offering rides, which excited Rhianna to no end.  She did manage a ride, but I have no photographic evidence as I was looking after the picnic.  It had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that, with my rather large belly, I couldn't get up off the blanket! 

There are lots of trains that you can ride.  They are powered by petrol, diesel, steam or electricity.  We rode an electric one.

Let me just say that there isn't a lot of room to move once you are seated, and I had serious worries about never being able to get out.  The trip takes you over about two kilometers of track.  Through really pretty bushland, over bridges and through tunnels.  They have stations scattered around the tracks and working lights and signals at the crossings.

After all the excitement we stopped for some ice cream!

I was really excited to find that we all had a great time.  I think we will be visiting again soon.

We've only ever been there when I've either had a big pregnant tummy or a newborn so I am yet to go round on the trains. Lovely spot though, we should head out there again sometime soon!
